Doubt it! They may have meant "The Leaving of Limerick".
So far as I'm aware the only person that "Liverpool" was collected from was American shanty-man Richard Maitland whose version appears in Doerflinger's "Songs of the Sailor & Lumberman". He appears on the Folkways recording "American Sea Songs and Shanties" but not singing "Leaving of Liverpool" I'm afraid.
